Two injured in Monday afternoon, Tuesday night car crashes
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Feb. 18, 2009) — Two Pulaski County residents wrecked their cars and suffered moderate injuries in separate crashes Monday afternoon and Tuesday night.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Natalie M. Woodward, 19, of Waynesville, was driving her 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt southbound on Highway T about three miles north of the Waynesville city limits about 12:20 p.m. Monday when she ran off the right side of the roadway on a curve, lost control of her vehicle, ran off the left side of the roadway, struck an embankment, and overturned.

Woodward’s Cobalt was totaled and removed by Rothmund’s Towing of Waynesville. Woodward, who had been wearing her seat belt, was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital.

A Tuesday night crash outside the county injured a local woman.

Troopers reported that Brandi R. Cruey, 25, of Dixon, had been eastbound on Interstate 44 one mile west of Rolla at 10:50 p.m. in a 2008 Ford Fusion when she ran into the rear end of the trailer being towed by a 2009 International semi truck driven by Christopher A. Burrows, 51, of Chippewa Lake, Ohio. Cruey’s Fusion ran off the right side of the roadway and went down an embankment before striking a fence and a tree.

The semi truck had only minor damage and was driven from the scene. Cruey’s car sustained extensive damage and was removed by C&C Towing of Rolla.

Both drivers had been wearing their seatbelts. Burrows was not hurt, but Cruey was taken to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla for treatment of her injuries.
